New Delhi: The Maharashtra government is planning to increase the height of a proposed Shivaji memorial statue (212 metre) to make it taller than the planned 221-metre Lord Ram statue in Uttar Pradesh's Ayodhya.
According to a report in Indian Express, Vinayak Mete, Chairman of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Memorial Project Implementation, Monitoring and Co-ordination Committee, said the move will be finalised after the UP government’s decision is verified.
“We will demand that the height of the Shivaji statue be increased to 230 meters. We will ensure that the height of the statue is increased.” Mete said while addressing a gathering in Jalna on Wednesday.
On November 24, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had finalised the details for the construction of a 221-m statue of Ram on the banks of the Saryu river.
